An Inside Look at PBR Plus: Recruiting Essentials



By Greg Williams
WV Director of Scouting

The Prep Baseball Report website offers a wealth of information and daily articles that allow a player, parent or the average fan of amateur baseball free content to devour. For those that want more, a PBR Plus subscription allows for even more content, video analysis and inside recruiting information.

During the course of the fall we will introduce the general public to all of the benefits afforded to those with a PBR Plus subscription. Today we take an inside look at our Recruiting Essentials blog and the vast amount of information it can provide to a potential recruit.

The Recruiting Essentials blog is PBR Plus subscriber-only content that explores how the college baseball recruiting process works¬† ‚?? from the first interaction with a college coach until a student-athlete steps on campus.

Our target audience includes high school baseball players that strive to play baseball at the next level, their families, coaches, as well as anyone with an interest in learning more about the college baseball recruiting process

Our main emphasis will be information related to NCAA Division I recruiting and eligibility rules as these are the most complex and having an understanding of these first will make learning how the other levels work much easier.

In addition to features on recruiting and eligibility rules we will also be posting content that take a close look at college baseball recruiting from a real world perspective in analysis, quick tip, Q & A and mailbag articles.

Topics we will cover:

  • NCAA, NJCAA and NAIA recruiting and eligibility rules
  • How to write a letter/e-mail to a college coach
  • College visits
  • In depth look at athletic scholarships and percentages
  • Academic scholarships and need-based aid
  • NCAA, NJCAA and NAIA rules specific to baseball ‚?? roster size, scholarship slots, walk-ons, etc
  • Transfer issues - 2-4, 4-4, 4-2-4
  • Q & A and Mailbag ‚?? answers to questions from prospects and parents
